This hugely visible instruction manual integrates cardiac anatomy and the cutting-edge imaging thoughts utilized in state-of-the-art catheter or electrophysiology laboratory, guiding readers to a complete figuring out of either common cardiac anatomy and the buildings linked to advanced center disease.

good prepared, simply navigable, and fantastically illustrated in a panorama layout, this special textual content invitations the reader on a visible intracardiac trip through attractive photos and schematic illustrations, together with such imaging modalities as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, radiography, and 3D mapping. each one bankruptcy the electrophysiology viewpoint with exact descriptions of the anatomic positive aspects appropriate to a wide selection of arrhythmias, including:

  • Supraventricular tachycardias
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Ventricular arrhythmias

With an outline of basic cardiac anatomy, congenital malformations, usual catheter positioning, and power pitfalls, Anatomy for Cardiac Electrophysiologists presents a great origin and speedy reference for trainees as they arrange for the realities of the catheter laboratory in addition to an outstanding refresher for skilled operators.
